The majority of IT professionals either don’t know anything about DevOps or just have a general understanding of the big picture. If you fall into either of those categories, this discussion is meant for you. In the following pages, we answer a number of basic questions—questions that probably sound much like your own.
Desktop management at any scale is a tedious job. Imaging, reimaging, and troubleshooting desktop systems consume valuable IT resources, and keep employees from being productive. Securing the information generated on desktops, tablets, and smartphones is no simple job either.
Many organizations are deploying virtual desktop infrastructures (VDI) for these reasons. But for deployment to be successful, computing and storage infrastructures must deliver high-quality, predictable, and productive user experiences.
Often, the best way to accomplish this is through flash-based storage solutions due to its low latency/high IOPS nature. Unfortunately many IT professionals aren't sure what type of flash array is best for their needs or how to ensure that all elements of their VDI work seamlessly.

If your company is using cloud computing services today, it’s highly likely you are already in a hybrid cloud configuration. The key question is whether you are actively managing this reality.
In January 2014, HP commissioned Forrester Consulting to evaluate the state of enterprise hybrid cloud environments and how they are being managed. Forrester developed a hypothesis that tested the assertion that enterprise IT operations teams struggle to recognize and manage this hybrid state — a hypothesis that was proven out.
Organizations have a serious “people problem” when it comes to securing networks. It’s time to address the bad habits of all users that have a hand in nearly every major data breach.
Read this white paper to explore the issue and the solution to your cybersecurity “people problem.”

New network vulnerabilities appear constantly and the ability for IT security professionals to handle new flaws, fix misconfigurations and protect against threats requires constant attention. However, with shrinking budgets and growing responsibilities, time and resources are at constrained. Therefore, sifting through pages of raw vulnerability information yields few results and makes it impossible to accurately measure your security posture.
